SUCCESS, many say, is a journey. Living a successful life is about moving in a positive direction. Using SUCCESS MINDSETS can help any of us to move from where we are now to an infinite number of positive destinations.

Having a positive, realistic, and effective MINDSET (which you might also call an outlook, a point of view, or a belief system) is one of the most powerful tools any of us can use to help us enjoy buzzing through our lives and our careers with great results.

    @Alex Swallow One of the great posts I have read. Thanks for sharing. If I may add, being the best doesn't mean we must prove that we can do things that others can't. It is a reminder that wanting and desiring doesn't go out for without a reason. I believe, to begin with, we must see the potential of ours and must realize that we already are the best. Our actions must corroborate to our intended goal. I agree, we must seek first to understand what we want to be good at. Only then we can have a clear set of objectives on how we are going carry it out. I'll be keeping an eye on your next post. Glad that you have used beBee.

    This makes me this of a photo I saw yesterday. The comic showed a man in a dark room and he was holding a book. The book was radiating light. He read the book and closed it, and then the light was coming from his eyes.
    We need to open ourselves up to listening to others and reading books that we help use grow to sometimes find this clarity. When I learn something new, I can now apply it. "Wow, I found the Needle!"

    @Savvy Raj Beautiful. Oh but for the joy of the search and the absolute wonder of the journey. Far too often we close our eyes, and ponder why we can not see. Far too often we close our ears, and inexplicably toil over why we fail to hear. Far to often we close our hearts, only to search and aimlessly wander as we look for the essence of our individual and collective being. When in the end, it is right there--within and around us--just asking us to embrace it all, nothing more. The profoundness of simplicity and perspective. Thank you for sharing such an insightful post.

    Judy, this is one of the best beBee live videos I've watched, no offense to others- it's just something I can relate to (the reasons for mindfulness, that is). You kept my attention which is hard to do. I have anxiety and developed depression from anxiety that has gone untreated properly for a very long period of time. My Therapist is using EMDR and mindfulness at the end of our session. He also had me envision a light, any color of my choosing and wanted me to picture it coming into my body as he spoke. I didn't have time to ask why were doing this but you gave me a better understanding. We had to take a break from the EMDR for a few sessions and will be resuming. I'm going to practice the breathing more than once a day. I will let you know how it goes. Thanks @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee for tagging me. Awesome video! You made me a much stronger believer in mindfulness in just this one video! I cant wait to hear/see more from you.

    @Lyon Brave, don't give up your dreams. There are many opportunities in Florida. I lived in South Florida for 10 years and loved it. You are close to Miami and the whole South Florida area. I see from your profile you do voice over work and love music. Miami has a lot to offer in these areas.

    I would definitely contact Candice because it's a good idea to know someone in the area plus she may know of existing opportunities.

    I would advise you to learn Spanish, which it is pretty easy to learn if you are there.

I hope the part you love about my comment has to do with my feelings for your penmanship or my original quote or that you ARE Brave.
    My wife and I live in Bradenton, near Sarasota. Sarasota would be perfect for someone like you. Tons of culture and near what have been called some of the best beaches in the USA.

    Well, @Lyon Brave - your Miami life-style is still yours for the designing. Candice isn't going to come get you, but you can create your way to what is next. Put aside the harsh reality and figure out what you have to offer that you can pitch to anyone in Miami - and put that effort into the holes in your schedule where the beach and dancing was meant to go.

    Dream big, write up what you have to offer, and use this platform to see what sorts of circles you can infiltrate.

    Don't give up on Miami until you've actually given Miami a true go.

    I'm sorry to hear things didn't work out as planned, Lyon, but don't give up hope just yet. Perhaps you've heard that saying: it's always darkest before the dawn. My suggestion is, since you're in South Florida anyway, why not check out jobs in Miami Beach and try to move there for a while. There's a huge tourism, hospitality and retail industry surrounding the South Beach area in particular. There's also a vibrant art and night life scene. Oh, and did I mention the beach and ocean. Why not take one more shot to make your dream become reality before leaving the Sunshine State? I'm sure there are obstacles, but if you persist, stay positive and keep the faith you never know how it could turn out. You might even look back later and be aghast that you almost left. The worst that could happen is it doesn't work out in Miami Beach. But at least you know you tried and leave without any regrets of what might have been. I also like that saying, "You're closer than you think." Success can be just around the corner. Remember, we all go through adversity on the road to success, happiness and fulfillment. Don't give up just yet. I know you can do it!

    It's a really important subject @๐Ÿ Fatima G. Williams
    KUBE loop
    Many people micromanage their whole life - every second
    and others near them
    and constantly 2nd guess what's going on around them
    and get upset and take offence (Just look at Facebook)
    That's an anxiety disorder !

    Believing in yourself develops from childhood
    and if it doesn't happen naturally
    if we become conscious of it as adults
    we can learn to do it if we are motivated and persevere

    Look at adults who learn to speak in front of large audiences
    which previously terrified them

    And sports people who overcome setbacks, injuries and performance anxiety

    And business people who went broke but tried again successfully

    I am sure all of you know people like this !

    And admire them.

    #30 Thanks for the clarification @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit. Yes, it was about Lorenz attractor, kind of an infinite periodic process.

    "There are great rewards as a results of initial conditions (the โ€Butterfly Effectโ€) and repeated self-discovery of ubiquitous chaos. In this special case, the initial conditions are faith, knowledge and willingness to follow our true self-similar nature." - from "The Secret Human Qualities That Truly Matter", LinkedIn long-form post, published on December 1, 2014

    "Only carefully written words should cause a growing clamor (determined chaos), innovation and an inevitable progress. All unpredictable and chaotic C - butterflies (,like FFF @๐Ÿ Fatima G. Williams)) behave similarly. There are plenty of them and they are self-similar, although they have different colors and shapes." - from "You Are a Social Leader? The Butterfly Effect", LinkedIn long-form post, published on June 30, 2015

    Ian Stewart from the Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick, UK.wrote a short popular text about Lorenz curve in the Nature journal, 31 August 2000, pp 949 as part of an article titled "The Lorenz Attractor Exists".

    #27 Think of it like this, without defining knowing at the beginning therefore knowing that knowing, you begin with a belief, create understanding through practice (execution), check that understanding (scientific method) and what emerges is new knowing and once you have this new knowing you action or act is bringing it into use - and now you plan with a new belief which will eventually process through and emerge a new knowing. That is why I would not start with knowing because examining the future through the old, whereas the cycle is about the fragrance and the wonder of something new - knowing as an emergence. That is the way of Milos - it is not the butterfly flaps but the Lorenz curve emerges in a pattern that looks like a butterfly. Put it simply the Deming Cycle or also called the Shewart Cycle (Plan Do Check Act) is about the same emergence which @Milos Djukic addresses in his buzzes.

    When it comes to KUBE - I like to compare it to PLAN-DO-CHECK-ACT originally conceived by Walter Shewart and then later adopted by the W. Edward Deming.

    In the case of PLAN, this is actually akin to believe because you will not plan anything that you did not believe in and if we are planning that we do not believe in, then we are following orders in work that is holding us hostage - so the question of doing what we believe accompanies the degree of autonomy and discretion that we have. Where we are in an environment where we are not able to question the plan, there we find dictatorship and the cage that imprisons the potential of people

    With DO - it is executive - because until we engage and see how things work, we are left solely in the world of academics or who create ideas but never test them in the field of human existence. This is the difference between invention and innovation.

    At CHECK - the understanding takes shape between what believed was possible and what execution revealed, and also what it affected. We may have made a profit but did our actions leave the rest of the organization weaker. This is understanding.

    Finally ACT is acting upon what we now know - which is the actual learning from checking our actions - and this knowing is called continuous improvement - and then we renew our belief and start again BEUK - it is not beBEE or KUBE but it is BE UK. Close

    @Graham๐Ÿ Edwards great buzz. This reminds me of a quote "You need to Build your Plane while your Learning to Fly it." The meaning of this was just take action and don't be afraid of making mistakes. Just adjust and move forward. "Try, Fail, Adjust, Succeed." Success doesn't come from a just a book. I have learned that is it better to take action and make a mistake in the wrong direction, then to learn everything and never take action at all. An example of this is trying to learn martial arts from reading a book. It will never happen, unless we take action and practice. I heard a speaker tell us that we needed to fail our way to success. A shortcut in time, is to find someone who already took the path and copy what they did. The same factor exists, "TAKING ACTION."

    In my opinion brand is personality or character which you achieve with your hard work and experience, which are qualitavely better than average person ,You attaract all kind of people. As you said its hard for your friends around you to understand you, I get it.

    As you evolved fasters, hence social media to connect with the people of equal qualities to have two way interaction with comfortable understanding and flows of arguments in fruitful direction to get good conclusions with time effectiveness because when you are brand time management is key to whom to spend with and how.

    Hence the global social platform to get connected with similar people.

    In short,

    "Platform to stand for equally evolved brand."

    MAN, Andy!...did this ever resonate with me. I teared up reading this.

    I've done Solo and Ensemble. I've been in her shoes.

    I've been strong in those easier moments, blending in with an Ensemble. Feeling on cloud 9. Then "getting to" do Solo... having my voice waiver and confidence plummet. Yet, it was foundational to life as you point out so eloquently.

    What a great human story @Andrew Books. You may have felt by kneeling and giving the gal words of encouragement was small but I'm sure it meant a lot to her and it speaks volumes of your character. I used to write poetry when I was in HS, I think it was my way of dealing with my dad's loss and typical teen angst. I didn't think my poems were good at all but for some reason I mentioned them to my English Teacher and she asked me to bring them in with enthusiasm in her voice. I did and she returned them with red pen all over my poetry. She suggested edits, told me I was a creative writer and she wanted to submit them to the Whos Who. I brought my poetry home and put the poems in my vanity drawer. I went back to retrieve them about a week later and they were gone. My sister said, Oh I cleaned that messy thing out and yep, I threw away everything. I was so bummed. But, this teacher had a major impact on me and my self esteem. How did your daughter do? It's so much fun to watch our kids perform, you sound like a great dad!!

    Sure, it takes courage to stand and be judged. I would add, it also takes courage to step in/step up and show kindness and compassion. You set a great example (on both accounts).

    #21 Dear Fatima, wisdom is a multi-person ladder we climb together, it's rungs may take us back to the beginning (the source) or a new horizon. The key is that wisdom is a relationship that comes through learning & being, it is not something that anyone can brand & buy. I honour you equally.

    20 Thank you @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit for sometimes I doubt what life is it we are living ? What is it that I achieve out of the ordinary ?
    I am going to hold onto these words for the rest of my life.
    " If we accept that greater truth and freedom means we open ourselves to that which is beyond what our own feelings can deal with, then we proceed mindfully and purposefully in a direction that recognizes that fear is the boundary between life and this truth."
    We should not succumb to our feelings but look beyond that boundary of fear.
    Your words are wisdom for life. Thanks a ton.

    #19 As this hidden world of horror reveals itself, it will make us doubt that more and more people are taking an integrated view of life for the sheer extent of horror will overwhelms us - but as we realize what has been sitting under the surface, the reality of that truth revealing itself will test our own spirit. That is when we are most likely to surrender our hopes, which ironically is the realization of hope.

    There are pot holes of transformation which have realized themselves but there are many hidden places in which all forms of abominations and cruelties are dispensed and it is still at a scale which is beyond the ability of any individual to come to terms with. If we accept that greater truth and freedom means we open ourselves to that which is beyond what our own feelings can deal with, then we proceed mindfully and purposefully in a direction that recognizes that fear is the boundary between life and this truth.

    That is why people are enamored with movie lines such as "you can't handle the truth" from A Few Good Men https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FnO3igOkOk - that is a line that straddles hypocrisy and what we fear we may get to know. It does not make life more right, more ethical or more humane, but it is a reality of the cesspool which is due to impatience of the powerful. What is human to a leader of a poor country is equally the line that leader draws, if we are impatient in what we elect to power then the same impatience create a false line between the humane and the inhuman.

    Unfortunately not even the bastion of what should represent a wiser form of "democracy" is ready for that so in all group actions there continues to be constant failure. No so the individual. We are individual and as there are more like us, we will establish a critical mass for the transformation we want to see as our world's future.

    "Man... He not only lives in this moment, but expands his inner self to yesterday, his curiosity to centuries ago, his fears to five billion years from now when the sun will cool, his hopes to an eternity from now. He lives not only on a tiny territory, nor even on an entire planet, but in a galaxy, in a universe, and in dimensions beyond visible universes.

    It is appalling, the burden that man bears, the experiential burden."

    Cyndi's comment below
    "Perhaps if more of us took on the task of addressing our own individual fears first, we could serve to shift the winds of change in favor of collaboration within the forces that govern our nations and move from conflict into a unified awareness of the long standing beliefs and cultural practices that no longer serve our growth as a 'global community."

    The world and I, the use is always mutual. The use will always be a matter of injustice. Because we may skip the word "grow" and "responsibility" and presume that "can't be selfish" implies that we already are. That is how the human mind has been conditioned by society to conveniently ignore a beautiful message by you and focus selectively.

    We dont use each other, we co exist. The universe exists because countless things co exist. An examlle, people choose poverty alleviation over child labour or deforestation, but it cannot be sustained because it all has to co-exist. Sometimes the best way to co exist is to quit the perceptions of "use" and "give" and "take" in the social sense altogether. Because giving and taking is simultaneous .. when we give/take unwisely we give misery to both...when we give/take wisely , we give progress to both. We can only value others when we value ourselves and all transactions are to enhance this value. The measures of value simply change, giving is just a mediator, a simple catalyst to realise it.

    Thank you @John White, MBA! for making me watch Sean Stephenson! I love the quote!! "Never believe a prediction that doesn't empower you." .
    I've been told "Doing your best is not good enough." at a very important occasion. I was devastated. I'm always impresses by titles and years of experience or education in a field where I just started. But since then, I have found "me": it's my way of training/educating people (not their way, they aren't used to it and I had to fit in). It helped me to put it in some kind of extreme: I want to be a mother Theresa and Vincent van Gogh at the same time. Caring for my attendees and being creative while conducting a training. That's me!
    So, it actually helped me, but gosh, what a nightmare it was ...

    John,
    I've come to the conclusion that there are three kinds of people in the world:
    1. Those who don't know what they don't know and hence are not capable of giving advice
    2. Those who know what they know and what they don't and can give advice on matters in their knowledge base
    3. Those those that ask for advice from the knowledgeable, listen and then find out for themselves.

    Of these the last is what I believe we should aim for while avoiding the unsolicited little voice in your head that says, "what makes you think you can..."

    Excellent reflection! All professionals without exception have skills to perform certain functions, but there are few who are able to recognize their failures. It's no use having a huge bag of knowledge and experience if you do not have your self-esteem elevated, for whatever you do will be considered by others a disaster, that's how the world turns. The superego is also not the best solution, but it is what masks the shortcomings of many of the bosses currently employed in the labor market. Throughout my career I have also been rejected several times in companies that I considered excellence, but I realized that many were afraid that I would take on a smaller position and be able to take their position as manager over time, comfortable position of boss, and look that some even came to tell me this, but I never let myself be beaten by the negative words, quite the contrary, then later I realized the good that they themselves had done to me. I would never have the knowledge to grow in my career with people who had nothing to add. Beginning to write a blog, a book or articles is really a very arduous task, especially when we have the ardent desire to show all those who rejected us one day, that we have enough knowledge and experiences to share with anyone who knows nothing, but it is the determination and self-esteem that keep us going. And over time we realize how much being a blogger or writer or an author does us well, and make us leverage not only our career but also highlights us in the environment we live in, that is making a difference, not just behind of an office desk thinking that it is changing the lives of subordinates, the organization, or even their own career. Everyone should experience this experience because they would know where their strengths or weaknesses in their professional career lie.

    And not everyone will tell you you're not good enough straight to your face. If it's implied rather than expressed, well, that may be even more destructive. One can respond to a direct put down with a sound 'FU', but when the put down is implicit, it plants insidious seeds of doubt in the mind.

    Then there are those who tell you what you can't do out of sincere desire to keep you from failing.

    Thanks, John for another thought-provoking article.

Interestingly enough, every time I've been fired, my boss has said "You do good work, Robert, but we're letting you go." I may write about this one day. It seems the day you stop nodding your head, you're a target. Head nodders always last longer than head shakers.

    John thanks for writing this. I occasionally ask myself what motivates me and one thing I always come back to was back in the late 1970's when I totally messed up my GCSE's, (too much partying). My English teacher told me I would never amount to anything so I left school with very few qualifications and have WORKED ever since. I have never been out of work, even after redundancy. I'm lucky to have met and worked with some fantastic people over the years who have helped and supported me, but I'd also like to thank my English teacher who told me I'd never be good enough.

    @John White, MBA Great to hear a story of recognition of what holds us back and what supports us in moving forward in our lives. If I surround myself with people who have higher expectations of me that I have of myself, then I will exceed my own expectations. My grandparents, my parents, my wife, my first manager, my friend who taught me squash, my friends, I can recite a long list of those who had higher expectations of me than I had of myself. There is a long list of detractors and belittlers but their names and roles have been crossed out so heavily I can't recall the names. Kia Kaha John, you do good service here.

    This article still inspires me @John White, MBA. For some reason, some people's titles have intimidated me. I think it depends on how they treat others with regards to being intimidated. I just wrote a small story about midlife and some feelings/fears I'm facing. My husband said, "Why do you write negative things when you do so many positive things in life?" I told him, I write what comes to mind and my writing does depend on my mood. Even articles that some may view as negative well, others can relate and I've found it can start conversations that lead to putting our heads together. At other times I admit, it's just cathartic. By the way, @David B. Grinberg tagged you, your company & I added your publications to the tag on my last post which is on Thriveglobal. You are an inspiration to so many and one day I would love to chat with you on the phone when you have time. I have a few ideas and I could use sound advice from someone like yourself!

    #5 This is very topical because I saw an interview with Matt Damon where the interviewer asked how his mentor in what was a regular school in Boston end up producing three Oscar winners in Damon, the two Afleck brothers. It is the way he fondly remembered his mentors that showed me just how many people in life are unsung heroes.

    I believe that when we have that level of gratitude, that emotive energy can be sufficient to override the negative batteries that drain us of energy and life.

    We know when we come across a negative battery, for their only purpose is to drain us, and so it is important to recognize these effects but also supplement positive effects that Matt Damon expressed in his great affection and tribute to his high school drama teacher, a man who selflessly taught his art so others could achieve the impossible dreams. We cannot let our lives be defined by tormentors when there are these mentors that you have expressed in our life.
